Dear DCES families,
This week was a fantastic first week of school for our cubbies! Seeing each class review DCES’ ROAR expectations by participating in our passport review was terrific. We ended our week by kicking off the school year with the Be Kind Crew! DCES was very appreciative of our guests that attended our first assembly for the school year. Our guests included Governing Board President Cieniawski, Vice President Werner, Dr. Libby Hart-Wells, Dr. Menzel, our SUSD Superintendent, and District Cabinet Members, including Ms. Serna, the Director of Elementary.
Thank you to our fabulous PTO and volunteers for providing teacher treats all week and for providing equipment and games for our high-heat recess rooms. Our cubbies enjoyed visiting the new movement room this week!
Next week our cubbies will be starting their beginning of the year FastBridge assessments for Reading and Math. Please ensure our cubbies sleep well, get breakfast in their tummies, and arrive at school on time. This year we are focusing on student academic excellence with an attendance focus. Below you can read further information regarding the importance of attending school regularly and scheduling student appointments outside the school day.
